Conscience Canada

Conscience Canada annual meeting on May 1

Four decades ago, a group of Quakers in Victoria, B.C., birthed an organization to support and propagate war-tax resisters. It attracted Mennonites, Friends and various other peace-minded people across Canada. Conscience Canada (CC) members worked for 20 years trying to get the government to allow people to pay taxes for peace instead of for war. However, CC’s board ran out of steam and thought it best to wind down its operations. Then some Ontario activists rescued CC from the dustbin of 20th-century peace movements and resuscitated it.
